guilfoyle, bob beckel, dana perino, and greg gutfeld. it is 5:00 in new york city. as you read in the paper, it is "the five"! so last week we told you about the brutal beating of a 13-year-old white kid by three african-american teens on a school bus in florida. on "the five," we have been calling for civil rights leaders and the president to speak publicly about the issue. still haven't heard a word from al sharpton, president obama, eric holder, or the naacp, but over the weekend, rev. jesse jackson stepped up to the plate and said this. >> we tried to make contact of the family of the kids because we should discourage people attacking people, whether black, white, white, black, people should stop attacking people. you must learn to live together respectfully in a civilized way, and if it comes black white white black, it makes matters worse, it does not make it better. >> took awhile, but give credit where credit is due. ref recommended jesse jackson steppedd made a comment. >> he was in africa and had been away. he said black white, white black, he went to the core of the thing and sai
strings. >> a lot to talk about with david gergen, chief white house correspondent jessica yellin and dana bash. jessica, we heard the president make this a promise that it's going to become more transparent. he says it was already happening before the snowden leaks. but is that really realistic? >> well, as you point out, wolf, he did say that he wanted more transparency back in may. he said that. that was right before edward snowden's first leak was in june. so his assertion is that the snowden leaks just sped up a process that was going to happen any way. well, we also have to take a bigger look at the big picture, which is did snowden actually lead to these new safeguards he put in place? we know that two democratic senators have been calling for more transparency and even reforms for more than a year now. sn when the head of the intelligence community went before congress, he's admitted now that he was less than truthful in talking about them. so that was all before snowden. would this have happened without snowden? we can't know, the train has left the station, but it does seem to ha
completely different in the nsa -- >> but he said it so well. >> day in a, talk about -- dana, what do you think of his remarks? did it come too late? he covered a lot of ground. >> okay. i think it was three weeks too late. i would have said that he should have done this press conference about three weeks ago because when he said that all of these things in washington were phony scandals, one of them that he's talking about is the nsa issue. i have defended the president on all this and i keep asking, could you help us defend you. he did something today, he made very clear he's gog have four-point plan and talked about the four-point plan. it's amazing when you have unemployment at what it is, the part-time jobs issue, he wants to talk about the middle class and he's talking about section 215 of the patriot act? we are down way, way, way down in the weeds. i think again, he could have done it three weeks ago. i would have said he should have done more about the middle class up at the top. i don't think the announcement needed to be about this. >> before he got smacked around by the presid
. this came during a meeting with a delegation of syrian expatriates. dana bash is joining us on the phone. we know there have been some conference calls between the white house and republicans and democrats. what are you hearing? >> that's right. they're going to take place our understanding is in a couple hours with at least on the senate side with republicans and democrats, but we also just learned that tomorrow, that's sunday, the white house is offering or at least administration officials are offering to come to capitol hill on a sunday to offer a classified briefing on the intelligence that the u.s. has on syria's chemical weapons to any and all members who are in town. sunday is labor day weekend. unclear how many will be able to make it in but it's significant for several reasons. one is that members of congress have been real chomping at the bit to get, understandably, to get information in a classified way that makes them feel comfortable that any kind of military strikes would be justified, but also this is just tea leaf reading here, it might be questionable whether or not they wo
they wrapped up a conference call. more from dana bash. this conference between the white house and members of congress, what do you know about it? >> i just talked to a lawmaker on that call and it lasted for more than an hour, close to an hour and a half and the gist of the administration's message is what we've heard publicly, they believe that assad's regime did use chemical weapons, that was the main message. they insisted that no decision has been made with regard to military action. there is no timetable on what or when that would be, but i'm also told even though there were 20 to 25 people of both parties on this call with administration officials, the secretaries of state and defense and others, it wasn't antagonistic. i'm told it was a good discussion. they listened to everybody's opinions, the opinions i'm sure as you suspect were varied but nobody said don't do it. one of the questions i had, was what the effect in great britain would be on members of congress. the answer that obama officials gave is that the u.s. is going to do what it needs to do, and another country will not
's go to capitol hill. dana bash is standing by. even before the president has spoken, tan ndana, some republi already starting with some preemptive reaction, shall we call it. >> reporter: that's right. it's going on so far in private in conversations that i've had with some republicans here on capitol hill. the nsa surveillance program is one of the few areas where you've actually seen republicans agree with the president. think that this program is the right thing to do for american security. so expect republicans to say that they're concerned about what jessica reported, widening the transparency of this program. because they say the problem isn't the program, it's the way the president has communicated about it or maybe the better way to say it, has not communicated about it. i think you're going to see some criticism, maybe skepticism on the republican side. the whole question, though, is what democrats are going to do. because they have been probably the most vocal critics of this program. particularly those on the left. you have senators like mark udall of colorado. i just spok
♪ >> should the mannings stick to football? good night from washington. with bob beckel, david webb, dana perino, greg gutfeld. it is 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." well, he was the only person jailed after terrorists stormed our consulate on 9/11 in benghazi, despite having nothing to do with the attack. the filmmaker has given a new interview, and he says he wants the world to see the truth about islamist extremists. but first, the terror attack that killed four americans. >> we have seen rage and
. firefighters are getting a helping hand from the weather let's check in with dana. >> hi, shan n no, unfortunately we are dealing with dry, warm and gusty conditions that are not helping firefighters in this vulnerable area. 77 as your daytime high, but wind gusts 30 to 40 miles per hour and because this fire is so big it can be very erratic and actually create its own weather conditions and its own weather gusts, the gusts of wind. firefighters will have to be careful trying to contain this and the mountainous terrain. it is rough to get in there. on monday the winds calm down a little bit. but it is only 7% contained. we think it is going to be with us certainly for much of the workweek. shannon, take a look here. we have over 50 fires burning across the west including the latest in yosemite. we will track itment back to you. >> a tough situation. thank you very much. >>> a battle is brewing over the administration. planning to fund planned parenthood to help with obamacare. and a 72-year-old man suspected of going on a shooting rampage that left at least two people dead. what ma
that ft. leavenworth will do that. it looks like dana coombs will have to sue the army or petition on medical grounds to get bradley manning transferred to a federal prison where perhaps he could get that therapy because due to army and d.o.d. regulations, ft. leaven swort not going to give that hormone therapy much less sex reassignment surgery. carol? >> if he did get this treatment, this hormone replacement therapy, who would pay for it? >> it would be the government. it would be the taxpayers. that's the way it is for any prisoner. basically, if you're a prisoner, the state or the government is responsible for your medical care because you can't fund your own medical care. there have been some rulings in the past where federal courts have struck down laws in which some states try to prohibit these taxpayer-funded hormone therapy regimens. again, some of the courts have struck those down saying you can't do that. and some prisoners have been receiving hormone therapy. sexual reassignment surgery is still relatively new. that also has been looked on somewhat favorably by some of
to acknowledge members of congress who are here including susan davis, darrell issa and dana rohrabacher. now, i've got to tell you the truth. i've been looking forward to this visit because -- this is a little tricky to say this. but my family and i, we've got a special place in our hearts for the marine corps. now, part of it is because every day at the white house, we're surrounded by marines. in fact, we probably got some folks here who were at the white house who are now here at camp pendleton. see? i figured as much. then, of course, every time i need to -- kind of a hop, skip and a jump somewhere, every time i get on marine one, i rely on some of the best aviators in the world. i've seen your honor. i've seen your courage. i've seen your commitment. whether in protecting our diplomatic posts around the world or preparing to deploy to iraq or afghanistan or recovering from wounds received in battle. you know, a few years ago, you gave a great camp pendleton welcome to my wife, michelle. and i know it's not as exciting when i come to visit, but she says hi. i guess i'm kind of like that arm
: scared. dana bonano vanished about three weeks ago. her mother received that text message on the night of her daughter's disappearance and told police she received no other text explaining why her daughter was scared. still missing almost three weeks later: >>> who did the background check on ed snowden? new questions about that company, and now an entire community's future might be on the line if the company did something wrong. patti ann: plus, the feds looking into planned parenthood. what is the group doing with millions of your taxpayer dollars?

wouldn't shut down because of a battle over health care. dana bash is watching what's going on, getting reaction to the news conference. is this really what the republicans are threatening to do, shut down the government to try to kill obama care? >> reporter: some are absolutely. i spoke with ted cruz, the republican senator for texas. he said before leaving for recess that he believes if th is the most critical, fundamental time for republicans to make good on their promise to appeal obama care by making this threat that the government is going to run out of money by the end of september and they're not going to vote on funding it unless obama care is defunded. and he's taunting fellow republicans saying they're scared, that's why they may not go his way. but they really are split. he's spending all of august with petitions and trying to push republican leaders to go forward on the strategy. but even the most fiscally conservative republicans are saying for many reasons this is not the best way to go. if you take obama care out of this, there are still questions about how republicans
begins at 7:00 a.m. eastern time on c-span. >> california congressman dana is our guest this week on news makers. he is the chair of the foreign photographers subcommittee. he discussion the u.s.-palestinian peace talks, russian relations and places like yemen and afghanistan. >> some people say well if we cut the military at least we won't have the temptation to go fight as much. and if the japanese want to fight over the isles against the chinese, let them do it. we are better off santiago out, and if we have a smaller military, we will be disinclined to get involved. if you look at historically when we fight and don't, i don't see a correlation of higher defense budgets and greater likelihood of intervening. the world wars began when we were unprepared. if we fast forward to the ragan years, in many years the ragan years, people can correct me if they wish afterwards or whenever, but the ragan years are still seen as the golden years of american defense policy because we billion up the budget and didn't really use the military. support that wonderful? i am not saying it was all ronald
